Breck Inn Breckenridge CO
Breckenridge, CO 80424
I decided to take the family on a quick trip to Breckenridge, I was looking for a hotel and stumbled on Breck Inn. I tend to be a bit of hotel snob...and can be super picky about rooms. I can honestly say this place exceeded my expectations. The room was very nice, new furniture, fluffy comforter, super clean... full size keurig...and more. The lobby is warm and inviting, the exterior is adorable and fits the environment well. They even have a full breakfast.. To top it off the staff is incredible...great vibe. They gave us tips on where to eat dinner, things to do...offered to take us to the ski resort, they have a shuttle, and much more. I look forward to visiting again.
Barf Inn & Colorado Cologne friendly Short version: Stayed a week @ Breck Inn, we encountered Issues with no security, pot smokers in non smoking hotel all week, vomit in hallway & walkway, dusty room, Kuerig coffee, carb breakfast & a security camera over the Jacuzzi. Long version: I don't like to write this stuff but wanted to forewarn you of our TG week events @ Breck Inn. All true..you can't make up this stuff up! Also, some of these circumstances discussed below are not controllable by the staff but the hotel rules/policies of no smoking, security, cleanliness, hotel facility esthetics... should be enforced for the health of the rest of the hotel visitors. Cautionary note: If you are Squeamish, don't read on, just find a different place to stay. Here's are the events.. I received a deal to tour the Grand Vacations, like many of our reviewers.. but I paid extra to stay the whole week. Room Amenities As noted in the other reviews they do have small rooms but I requested the Suite which is 1 bedroom and family room with queen pull out & a full kitchen with all of the utensils, pots/ pans set up and was great size for the three of us. Not the best was the Keurig coffee, but we endured it. Odors It was all going well at the Breck- Inn but our first day Monday- upon entering after skiing, we came into the hallway which reeked/smelled of 420 and the staff apologized but nothing was done because there was pot smell in the hallway all week. Guess this is the new Colorado Cologne? Then when getting back from Thanksgiving dinner with relatives, we walked into a trash can in the hallway piled high with with bags of an odor from HE-double LL!! The stench was from large amounts of chunky vomit which apparently occurred in the main hallway. This was a serious nose holding horrible smell event. The entire hotel was nose curdling after this event. We went skiing during the day to avoid the smell but It was still going strong when we left on Saturday. Also, the trail of barf liquid trailed outside on the frozen walkway & our shoes got a little barf on the soles. No lighted or poorly lighted walkway. We ended up taking the Breck odor with us on our way to the Airport. Ewwww!! Dust Also our room has dust on top of the bed mantle & lamp. I had an allergy attack while I was there...& looking back I should have asked for a deep cleaning. My fault for not speaking up, but last thing I want to do on vacation. Breakfast Also the free continental breakfast is a standard minus the fact there is no protein options (eggs, bacon, sausage). So great for all you carb lovers.. bagels, donuts and make your own waffle which my son loved. Security We called to let the hotel know we were arriving after hours (10:00 pm). Breck Inn Lady on phone was super nice and had given us the upgrade to the suite & code to get in the front door. The problem was the door was unlocked after hour & everything was open & no one around. I had to use the phone and ended up waiting 15 mins until the night person showed up & retrieved my keys. Outdoor Jacuzzi Nice & hot with good spray & lots of towels to use. But not so private with the camera on the ceiling. Hotel should be 4 stars & even could be 4.5 but there are facility & policy improvements to make happen. So with these odd odor events I am giving a generous 2.0. 5 star for the Staff attitude but should add dusting to housekeepers agenda. If you are the green lover, this hotel might be a great place since they are a 420 friendly...
